L’opposition égyptienne continue à résister aux islamistes | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Des heurts ont opposé, vendredi 22 mars ,des manifestants de l’opposition à des membres des Frères musulmans soutenus par la police près du siège de la confrérie en banlieue du Caire, devenu la cible de la colère des opposants aux islamistes au pouvoir.

Mohammed Soltane , responsable des services de secours, a annoncé à l’agence officielle Mena que plus de 120 personnes ont été blessées dans les violences .

En soirée, plusieurs groupes de manifestants se trouvaient toujours aux abords du siège des la confrérie des Frères musulmans, situé sur la colline du Moqattam, dans la banlieue de la capitale, et placé sous forte protection de la police anti-émeute en prévision de la manifestation.(....)

En face, des partisans des Frères musulmans ont tiré à la chevrotine, a constaté le même journaliste .

« Je suis venu exprès de Bilbeiss (delta du Nil, ndlr) pour protéger le siège avec mes frères », a dit un membre des Frères musulmans.

« Moutons! Troupeau! Vous marchez derrière Badie! », sont les slogans scandés par les opposants, en référence au Guide suprême de la confrérie Mohammed Badie, accusé d’être le véritable décideur en Egypte dans l’ombre du président islamiste Mohamed Morsi .

Egypte : Un mort et 8 blessés lorsque la police chasse un groupe de voyous armés

Un civil a été tué et huit recruts ont été blessés mecredi lorsque la police a chassé un groupe de voyous armés à Qalyubiya, à 40 km au nord du Caire, a annoncé le porte-parole du ministère de la Santé Yahya Moussa à l'agence Chine Nouvelle.

 

La situation de sécurité s'est détériorée en Egypte depuis la révolution de 2011 qui a renversé le régime de Horni Moubarak.

La situation de sécurité s'est dégradée encore ces derniers temps en raison de la lutte politique entre les partisans et les opposants du président islamiste Mohamed Morsi.

Egyptian protesters torch buildings in Cairo

Egyptian protesters torch buildings in Cairo | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Islamist groups and parties backing Mursi called on their followers to form popular protection committees to guard the streets and public property should police fail to do so.

 

Egyptian protesters torched buildings in Cairo and tried unsuccessfully to disrupt international shipping on the Suez Canal, as a court ruling on a deadly soccer riot stoked rage in the country.

 

The ruling enraged residents of Port Said, at the northern entrance of the Suez Canal, by confirming the death sentences imposed on 21 local soccer fans for their role in the riot last year, when more than 70 people were killed.

But the court also angered rival fans in Cairo by acquitting a further 28 defendants whom they wanted punished, including seven members of the police force.

Security sources said two people, a man in his 30s and a young boy, had died in Cairo from the effects of tear gas and rubber bullets. A total of 65 people were injured.

Islamist groups and parties backing Mursi warned against a looming security breakdown and called on their followers to form popular protection committees to guard the streets and public property should police fail to do so.

The presidency said in a statement that the protests had not been peaceful and condemned violence against property. The cabinet issued a similar statement and called on Egyptians to unite and respect court rulings.

On Thursday, Egypt's election committee scrapped a timetable under which voting for the lower house of parliament should have begun next month, following a court ruling that threw the entire polling process into confusion.

The stadium riot took place last year at the end of a match in Port Said between the local side Al-Masry and Cairo's Al-Ahly team.(...)

 

In Cairo, local Al-Ahly fans vented their rage at the acquittals, setting fire to a police social club, the nearby offices of the Egyptian soccer federation and a branch of a fast food chain, sending smoke rising over the capital.

A military helicopter scooped up water from the nearby Nile and dropped it on the burning buildings.

"Ultra" fans, the section of Al-Ahly supporters responsible for much of the violence, said they expected retribution for those who had planned the Port Said "massacre".(..)

In Port Said, where the army took over security in the city centre from the police on Friday, about 2,000 residents who want the local fans spared execution blockaded ferries crossing the Suez Canal. Witnesses said youths also untied moored speedboats used to supply shipping on the waterway, hoping the boats would drift into the path of passing vessels.(...)

 

ISLAMIST BACKUP

Hazem Salah Abu Ismail, a popular Salafi preacher, condemned attempts by the opposition and youth groups to "burn the country down" as a pretext to create a power vacuum and bring back military rule.

"We will face any attempts by the opposition ... to bring back military rule. We have popular blocs to protect and guard," Ismail said.

The Salafi Al-Nour Party and the Gama'a al-Islamiyya made similar statements, calling on their followers to replace the police force should it pull off the streets.

Egypte: un manifestant tué au Caire dans des heurs avec la police | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Un manifestant est mort samedi au Caire lors de heurts avec la police près de la place Tahrir. La victime "est morte asphyxiée" dans l'ambulance où elle avait été transportée après avoir respiré des gaz lacrymogènes tirés par les forces de l'ordre, qui font face à plusieurs centaines de manifestants jetant des pierres.

 

Ces heurts font suite au verdict prononcé samedi par le tribunal du Caire dans le procès du drame de Port-Saïd, jugé trop clément par les supporteurs de l'équipe al-Ahly du Caire.(...)

Des manifestants perturbent le canal de Suez à Port-Saïd

Des manifestants perturbent le canal de Suez à Port-Saïd | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Des manifestants de Port-Saïd en colère contre la confirmation des peines capitales prononcées dans l'affaire des émeutes meurtrières de 2012 ont fait dériver des hors-bords dans le canal de Suez dans l'intention de perturber le trafic, ont déclaré des témoins.

Les manifestants ont détaché des hors-bords utilisés pour ravitailler des navires empruntant le canal de Suez dans l'espoir de les voir dériver et perturber le trafic.

Près de 2.000 manifestants à Port-Saïd ont également empêché des ferries transportant des voitures de traverser le canal. La police militaire a retrouvé les cinq bateaux détachés et les a ramenés sur la côte à Port-Saïd, mais deux étaient encore en train de dériver, a déclaré un témoin à Reuters.

 

L'incident s'est produit après la confirmation samedi par la justice égyptienne de la condamnation à la peine capitale de 21 habitants de Port-Saïd après les émeutes meurtrières de février 2012.

 

Port-Saïd, à l'embouchure nord du canal de Suez, est le théâtre de fréquentes manifestations, parfois violentes, pour protester contre la mort d'habitants lors d'affrontements avec la police et contre le premier verdict rendu par la justice en janvier dans l'affaire de la bousculade meurtrière du stade de la ville.

 

Hormis à une reprise, les protestataires ont toujours fait du canal de Suez, axe majeur du commerce mondial et important pourvoyeur d'emplois localement, une "zone franche" pour les manifestations.

Au Caire, des supporters de football ont par ailleurs incendié un club fréquenté par des policiers.

Protesters try to storm Semiramis hotel, smash iron facades

Protesters try to storm Semiramis hotel, smash iron facades | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Protesters smashed the iron facade of the Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel on the Corniche al-Nil during clashes with security forces in Cairo Thursday evening, and attempted to break into hotel.

The protesters also threw Molotov cocktails at the hotel, but the staff put out the fire from the inside.

Security forces advanced toward the hotel and fired tear gas canisters and birdshot, wounding some and forcing the rest to retreat. They also arrested 20 protesters.

Ambulance took some of the wounded to Qasr al-Aini Hospital, while others were treated in the Tahrir Square field hospital.

Security forces in civilian clothes had earlier clashed with masked protesters who broke into shops on the corniche and stole artifacts.

The Semiramis had previously closed down temporarily after assailants broke into following similar clashes.

***************************************************

Security forces arrested 20 protesters in the early hours of Thursday morning near the Semiramis Intercontinental Cairo hotel downtown.

Security forces deployed police wearing civilian clothes among the demonstrators after a group of masked men attacked stores along the Corniche al-Nil and stole some ancient statues.

Uneasy calm prevailed in the morning in the area around the corniche, Qasr al-Nil Bridge and Simon Bolivar Square by the US Embassy, as well as the Semiramis and Shepheard hotels, after another night of clashes between security forces and hundreds of protesters.

At about dawn, protesters returned to the Tahrir Square area.

Affrontements quotidiens en Egypte

Affrontements quotidiens en Egypte | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Nouvelle journée d’affrontements en Egypte.

Des manifestants se sont à nouveau opposés à la police au Caire, non loin de la place Tahrir. Les heurts se sont déroulés en marge des funérailles d’un militant tué précédemment.

La crise économique dans laquelle le pays s’enfonce ne fait qu’exacerber les tensions ces dernières semaines. Une partie de la population se sent notamment trahie par Mohamed Morsi, le président issu des Frères musulmans.

A Port Saïd, les violences ne cessent plus depuis trois jours. Une cinquantaine de personnes auraient été blessées ce mardi. Six personnes avaient été tuées dans la nuit de dimanche à lundi.

La ville s’est embrasée dimanche suite à la décision des autorités de transférer hors de la ville une quarantaine de prisonniers en attente de leur procès pour leur participation à des violences après un match de football en février 2012. Des violences qui avaient fait 74 morts. Fin janvier, une vingtaine de supporters avaient été condamnés à la peine capitale dans la même affaire.

Violence en Égypte : des partis se blâment

Violence en Égypte : des partis se blâment | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it
Les différents partis politiques égyptiens s’accusent mutuellement d’être responsables de l’un des plus importants épisodes de violence à éclater entre partisans et opposants des Frères musulmans, mouvement duquel est issu le président Mohammed Morsi.

La puissante formation politique a soutenu samedi que les partis d’opposition étaient responsables d’avoir offert une «protection politique» à des «sbires» qui ont attaqué et battu des centaines de ses partisans à l’extérieur de son quartier général au Caire.

Mais selon les groupes de l’opposition, le président Mohammed Morsi est à blâmer dans cette histoire. Ils accusent le dirigeant d’avoir polarisé le pays et d’avoir échoué à offrir de la stabilité neuf mois après avoir été porté au pouvoir, dans le cadre des premières élections libres à se tenir en Égypte.

Egypt's cabinet spokesperson has condemned the violent protests that took place at several Muslim Brotherhood offices on Friday.

 

The spokesperson called on political forces in a statement issued on Saturday, to "remove the political cover" off those who carry out violent attacks "as these actions are not aimed at the country's interest, but rather to achieve goals that would undermine the country's security."

Egypte: la colère des "révolutionnaires" contre les islamistes s'aggrave

Egypte: la colère des "révolutionnaires" contre les islamistes s'aggrave | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Deux ans après la chute de Hosni Moubarak, de nombreux "jeunes de la révolution" estiment n'avoir plus que la violence de rue pour s'opposer aux Frères musulmans au pouvoir en Egypte, accusés de reproduire un système répressif, sourd aux espoirs de démocratie.

"C'est devenu une guerre de rues. Chaque coup qu'ils nous portent, on le leur rend encore plus fort", lance Farid Sayyed, 24 ans, rencontré lors des affrontements des derniers jours devant le siège des Frères musulmans dans la banlieue du Caire.

 

A trois reprises en une semaine, les abords du bâtiment, dans le quartier de Moqattam, ont vu des violences entre manifestants proches de l'opposition, membres de la confrérie islamiste et policiers, qui ont fait plusieurs dizaines de blessés.

 

C'est la première fois que le siège de la confrérie est ainsi visé, preuve que le puissant mouvement islamiste et son bureau politique sont désormais identifiés comme le vrai centre du pouvoir, éclipsant le président Mohamed Morsi, pourtant issu de ses rangs.

When It Is More than a Game: Football Violence in Egypt

When It Is More than a Game: Football Violence in Egypt | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

It is frenzied and continuing, but the riots in Egypt have become so regular as to suggest that the Arab Spring never stopped. The country, even post-Mubarak, is seething with insurrection.  And the outlets of dissatisfaction, expressed via social media and the more physical aspect of sport, are everywhere.

 

The violence during the week in Egypt might be termed “football violence”, but the term is deceptive.  (...) But initial accounts that they were all linked to football have become unreliable.  What is certain is that a good portion of it has left a police station in flames, the headquarters of the Egyptian Football Federation in ruins and two people dead, being a response, in turn, to the violence that took place in February 2012 in Port Said stadium.(...)

 

Witnesses also claimed that the entire police force stood like mute sentinels, passive in the face of the violence.  The implication here was the football fans were to be punished for their own unruliness – they had been instrumental, went one argument, in overthrowing Hosni Mubarak.

 

The problem of such rioting is compounded by the close institutional ties between clubs and authorities.  This is certainly the case between Cairo-based Al-Ahly and Port Said’s Al-Masry.  Al-Ahly has always been Cairo’s team, the team of power and much silverware.  Al-Ahly has a pedigree to be proud of, the “African Club of the Century”, if one is to believe the verdict of the Confederation of African Football.  Al-Masry has been the contending outsider, certainly in terms of political and sporting establishment. (...)

 

And here (IN PORTSAID), a football battle becomes a battle for a separatist movement.  Local government headquarters in Port Said were besieged by hundreds carrying flags urging Port Said to become an independent republic (Guardian, March 9).

 

This element of the program has been severely underdone in media coverage.  The Port Said tensions, using football as a pretext, threaten to undermine the Muslim Brotherhood’s rule in Egypt.  There is little love lost between residents there and President Mohamed Morsi. Curfews are disobeyed with relish.  There are suggestions that Morsi has lost power in Port Said altogether, with officials retreating into obscurity and silence.  This is the implication of a report by Evan C. Hill for Foreign Policy (January 30) aptly titled, “The Republic of Port Said”.

 

The argument stemming from Al-Ahly, in contrast, was that not enough was done to protect their supporters and players.  It was their players who were encircled by hostile local supporters.  It was they who had entered into a territory still sympathetic to Mubarak and openly defiant of the Muslim Brotherhood (...)

 

History is replete with such examples of political clubs and their incendiary supporters.  The Spanish Civil War runs in the blood of Real Madrid and Barcelona, the narratives ever heavy with reminders that Generalissimo Franco and Real were seen as one and the same thing.  Catalan secessionism, and Barça’s might on the football field, have always been twin aspects of the same, rough coin.

Update: Two confirmed dead during clashes near Corniche

Update: Two confirmed dead during clashes near Corniche | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

The Health Ministry confirmed the death of two protesters during clashes with police on the Nile Corniche nearby Qasr al-Nil Bridge in downtown Cairo on Saturday. 

Mohamed Sultan, head of Egypt’s Ambulance Authority told the privately-owned ONtv satellite channel that one of the victims passed away while being treated for suffocation from tear gas. 

The other victim, according to the Health Ministry, is 20-years-old and died from a birdshot in his neck. 

The families of both victims demanded from the police to take the dead bodies of their deceased sons, but the prosecution insisted that autopsies are conducted first. Protesters marched to the morgue where autopsies were to take place. 

 

Meanwhile, one child had also reportedly suffered a bullet wound to the head during clashes on the Corniche downtown. Protesters were waiting on Saturday for ambulances to transport the victim to a hospital, while news spread that he was already dead.

Sultan said that ambulances had responded to nine more cases of suffocation during the clashes. Different Egyptian news outlets have reported birdshot being used during the clashes around the downtown Cairo area.

Dozens of protesters hurled stones at the Semiramis Intercontinental Hotel on the Corniche road until Saturday evening. State-run Al-Ahram newspaper reported on its website that protesters damaged the hotel’s exterior and gates.


Others blocked traffic on the road to protest police officers' use of birdshot to disperse protesters. The liberal Wafd Party's official newspaper had reported that police were using birdshot to prevent protesters from storming the hotel.

Meanwhile, firefighters put out a small blaze at the Qasr al-Dobara school at Simon Bolivar Square. No causalities were reported.

Egypt on fire after Port Said riot death sentences upheld

Egypt on fire after Port Said riot death sentences upheld | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

A protester was killed on Saturday in fresh clashes with the police in central Cairo, the head of Egypt's emergency services told AFP.

"He suffocated" after inhaling tear gas and "died in the ambulance," Mohammed Sultan said.

 

An Egyptian court on Saturday confirmed the death sentences for 21 people that took part in the deadly soccer riot last year but it acquitted seven police officials for their alleged role in the violence. Suspected fans enraged by the verdict torched the soccer federation headquarters and a police club in Cairo in protest.(...)

 

Shortly after the verdict was announced, suspected fans of Cairo's Al-Ahly club went on a rampage, torching a police club nearby and storming Egypt's soccer federation headquarters before setting it ablaze. Two army helicopters were being used to put out the fires.

At least five people were injured, a Health Ministry official told the MENA state news agency.

In anticipation of more violence, authorities beefed up security near the Interior Ministry, riot police deployed in the streets of central Cairo.

Égypte: un manifestant tué à Port-Saïd

Un manifestant égyptien a été tué hier soir dans des affrontements avec la police à Port-Saïd, dans le nord-est du pays, a indiqué vendredi une source médicale.

Karim Sayyid Abdel Aziz, 33 ans, a été touché à trois reprises par balle, dont une à la tête, a précisé Dr Mohamed Arnous qui a tenté de le réanimer en vain. Le médecin a fait état par ailleurs de 73 manifestants blessés.

Des affrontements ont eu lieu hier soir à Port-Saïd, à deux jours d'un verdict attendu dans le procès d'une tragédie du football survenue il y a un an dans cette ville.

La tension est très vive à Port-Saïd depuis la condamnation à la peine capitale en janvier de 21 personnes, principalement des supporteurs du club de football de la ville, accusées d'être responsables de la mort de plus de 70 personnes après un match l'an dernier contre une équipe du Caire. (...)

Dozens protest release of policeman charged with running over protester

Dozens protest release of policeman charged with running over protester | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Dozens of people rallied in Talaat Harb Square earlier Thursday to protest the release of Mohamed Saqr, a low-ranking policeman charged with running over a protester, Hossam Abdallah, in Mansoura, on a bail of LE5,000.

The protesters chanted against the Interior Ministry and raised banners with the photos of former Interior Minister Habib al-Adly, who is currently in prison, and current Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim next to each other.

Saqr was ordered arrested Monday for four days pending investigations.

Saqr was originally ordered detained for a further 15 days pending investigations, but the Daqahlia Security Directorate requested the cancellation of the decision after policemen and Central Security Forces announced a sit-in inside their camp to protest the decision.

The concerned court examined the request and decided to release Saqr on bail.

Anti-riot police in Daqahlia had fired tear gas Friday to prevent protesters from attacking the governorate headquarters, and during the clashes, a police vehicle ran over Abdallah, while another person was killed by live bullets.

Clashes renew at Nile Corniche | Égypt-actus | Scoop.it

Clashes between protesters and police renewed on Wednesday on the Nile Corniche south of Tahrir Square in Cairo Wednesday, as traffic stopped while the two sides hurled stones at each other.

Traffic police redirected traffic, causing slowdowns on Qasr al-Aini and other streets nearby.

Traffic on the 6th October Bridge was flowing normally on Wednesday morning following clashes that erupted on Tuesday and continued until dawn.

A number of protesters had also set some trees in front of the Arab League headquarters alight before firefighters put the fire out.
